Grants to South Dakota universities to collaborate with private sector partners for the commercialization of STEM innovations. Applicants are required to submit a letter of intent prior to a full application. The intent of this program is to increase research competitiveness and expand the State’s knowledge economy.
The objective of the program is to establish recognized leaders in a focused research area and commercialize promising research results in collaboration with private sector partners. The Governor’s Research Center program is intended to accelerate the growth of research competitiveness, move innovations to market and support expansion of South Dakota’s knowledge economy. Governor’s Research Centers have had a history of success expanding South Dakota’s R&D, spinning out businesses, establishing public private collaborations and securing external funding.

A successful Center’s outcomes are translational; they expand the economy both directly through creating new employment opportunities at the Center, partnering with businesses and spin off companies and contribute to STEM workforce development.
